It is nice to be able to drive 15 minutes and be on a beautiful trail. DO NOT follow the trail on the app. The trail does not go all the way around the 2nd pond. I don't know if you will get a completed trail if you don't go all the way around the 2nd pond, but you have to go through brush and way of trail to do that.

It's a nice place for an easy calming walk. Lots of birds around eagle's have been hanging around the few days. What a great sight.

Lock your car there are usually people hanging around in the parking lot.

Dog friendly. Theres alot of signs of dog must on leash. You cross through several ponds and you can walk down the south platte on a different trail. We didnt go that route and will probably save it for another time. Great easy 30min walking pace. I bet in the summer its filled with fisherman as there are signages for fishing and especially being net to the south platte river. Definitely coming back to try the fishing.

It's ok. Good access from main road but I think closer to 1.75 miles or less, than over 2 listed here.

There is a locked gate with construction roads on what would be some nice scenic walks. Nowhere nearby was there parking. It's a dud.

I walked but this would be a great bike trip. If you can't get out of the city, this ends up being fun and the trail goes on forever....
